The following errors appeared in the above-mentioned article:

k-vector values have to be multiplied by a factor of 2π. In turn, effective masses, Rashba parameters as well as the channel length are affected. In the evaluation of the effective masses an additional correction by a factor of 10 must be taken into account. Specifically, we report in the Table below the values that have to be corrected.

The k-vectors scale of Fig.1 d) and e) has to be rescaled by a factor of 2π and is shown below:

Furthermore, the Figure S3 has been amended as well. The correct Figure S3 is shown here:
